UPDATE FROM LEAGUE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE MEETING
Please see the updates following the League Management Committee meeting that was held recently
Over 45 Cups season 2019/20
It has been agreed next season the Over 45 Cup Competition will be split into two Divisional Cups. This will be the Over 45 Premier Division Cup and the Over 45 Division One Cup. The Finals will be staged on a Senior Club ground. This brings the Over 45 competition in line with the Over 35 Competition.
A suggestion has been made that we run an Over 55’s Cup. Any teams that may be interested in entering an Over 55 Cup competition please can they let the League Secretary know by 13th March 2019. We are considering whether to run this as an 11 v 11 Cup or as a 9 v 9 competition. Players can only register for one Club within the League so a player could not play Over 55’s for one Club and Over 45’s for another.
Proposed League Rule Changes 2019/20
These have been circulated to Club Secretary’s for their comments. We have included adding a requirement for squad lists to be submitted 72 hours in advance of Cup Semi Finals due to issues we have had with ineligible players being played by mistake in Semi Finals.
Player Registration Cut Off Date
The last date for registering or transferring players for the 2018/19 season is Saturday 9th March 2019
Cup Finals Dates
These are now confirmed as follows:
20th March Over 45’s at Aveley FC
3rd April Division Three at Aveley FC
10th April Division Four at Bowers & Pitsea FC
24th April Division Two at Bowers & Pitsea FC
26th April Division One at Aveley FC
7th May Premier Division at Aveley FC
Change of Teams for Season 2019/20
If you are looking at running a different number of teams to this season please can you kindly advise the League Secretary by 18th April 2019? This applies whether it is more, less or different age group i.e. moving from Over 35’s to Over 45’s.
